They, along with the Nords, moved and made the finals.

The WHALLLLLLEEEEEEE!

Yeah, they f*cking sucked.

The former owner lives in Newport, his pool has the logo in it. Also, the local kids hockey team took up the logo and the name. It lives on.

I thought they moved to the Moon?

Before they moved I got my SiL a jersey and she still wears it.
I have this NHL pin set with a few teams that no longer exist, whalers and Nordstrom and the old new penguins logo.

FTFA: "It's the meaningless game with tremendous meaning," SportsChannel play-by-play announcer John Forslund told audiences before the April 13, 1997 game.

Oh wow, I haven't thought or even read anything anything mentioning SportsChannel in at least a decade. That name is definitely a blast from the past.

No one in the history of the world has ever uttered those words before in that order.  That's awesome.

CSB: I was living in Hartford in 2004 when I saw Van Halen play the Hartford Civic Center.  For the encore, Eddie came out in a Whalers jersey.  Mind you, that year the UConn men and women both won the basketball titles.  He could have come out in a UConn basketball jersey, and everyone would have applauded.  But the fact that he chose the Whalers, to me, was just awesome.

Eddie might be the biggest jerk in rock music this side of Axl Rose or Mike Love.  But that night, Eddie Van Halen wasn't a complete tool, and I know how much it meant to everyone there that night.

That's for sure.  'Canes fans are terrible.  They're still learning the game, but the scream for the silliest reasons.

The red wings use a wheel because the best part of Detroit is driving away from it.

Gunderson: Verbeek needs to be in the Hall of Fame


Verbeek, Dineen and Ulfie (maybe) came to my HS and gave a no drinking lecture once (late 80s early 90s). I just recall it being hilarious and the guys could barley stay on message during the Q & A

My first hockey game was Whalers v Bruins. They had to scrape the blood off the ice and it took them a while. Been a hockey fan ever since
